“Nice Vegan Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

There are not a whole lot of fine dining options for vegans so when we heard that they had a vegan menu we made a point of planning a special event dinner there. Very nice menu and beautifully presented with good service as well. A little pricey but it was definitely fine dining so acceptable. Happy to recommend to vegans looking for a fine dining experience in Auckland City.

“Enjoyable evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2009

We ate dinner at Hectors on the Queen's Birthday holiday and had a very nice evening. The restaurant was not even half full, and we were given a rather odd table close to the kitchen and my chair was jutting out so I could lean back see into the area where the staff fold their napkins and do their "thing". I think the table was chosen for easy proximity for serving so the staff didn't have to walk far. We were going to ask to be moved, but just decided to relax and not worry.
We were very happy with the service throughout the evening; nice hot bread rolls with lots of butter, tasty entrees and my lamb main meal was absolutely delicious. I would definitely eat at this restaurant again.
One downer: A 20% surcharge for the public holiday. There was a large sign as we entered, so we knew the charge was on, but still thought it was a little hefty.
